You’re invited: LHS Collaboratory seminar on ‘Applications of AI/Machine Learning in Gastroenterology’

January 8, 2020  //  FOUND IN: Updates & Resources

The Department of Learning Health Sciences partners with the Institute for Healthcare Policy & Innovation and the Office of Research to convene the LHS Collaboratory: a hub for advancing interdisciplinary research and development of learning health systems at U-M.

Through collaboration, the teams are strengthening U-M’s opportunities for federal funding along with attracting foundations and donors for additional opportunities.

The LHS Collaboratory’s approach to improving individual and population health will make U-M a leader in the national and international movements to achieve learning health systems at organizational, regional, and national scales.

As part of those efforts, the collaboratory hosts a seminar series. The next seminar will be held on Jan. 30 and is entitled “Applications of AI/Machine Learning in Gastroenterology.”

It will be presented by Akbar K. Waljee, M.D., M.Sc., associate professor of gastroenterology and hepatology.

Waljee’s research focuses on tailoring treatment to the specifics of the individual (precision care) with gastrointestinal and liver diseases. He uses artificial intelligence methods such as machine learning and deep learning to improve decision-making for tailored and individualized care to facilitate the delivery of efficient, effective and equitable care, especially in costly diseases and in limited resource settings.
